Girl in good condition after mower injury

May 12, 1994

The condition of a 3-year-old Finksburg girl, who lost two left toes and suffered severe lacerations on her right leg when she was run over by a riding lawn mower, was upgraded to good yesterday at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Children's Center.

State police said that the accident happened about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when Emily K. Le Roy, who lives in the 3500 block of Pleasant Plains Drive, was walking next to the mower that her 6-year-old sister, Audrey, was driving. They were accompanied by their father, police said.

Emily stepped in front of the mower, and was knocked down and run over by the front tire, police said.

Timothy Le Roy told state police that his daughter's legs became caught in the lawn mower's belts, which engaged the blades, causing the injuries.

Emily was flown to the Baltimore hospital by state police helicopter after treatment by medics from the Reese fire station.

The accident occurred on Pleasant Plains Drive, police said.
